Fly through the air and admire the island from above! Why not plan to do your paragliding initiation while on holiday?

3. Bungee jumping

In the forest of Ospedale, ascend to 25 metres above ground – where the mountains stand out from the forest – before jumping into the void: a strong sensation that will anchor this memory in the depths of your gut!

5. Tree climbing

Practise scaling a Lariccio pine 30 metres high! Go down the slopes with ziplines of several dozen metres and jump like Tarzan into the net. Go from tree to tree via monkey bars but beware of vertigo! If you have a head for heights, this activity is for you.



6.  MTB

For mountain bike lovers in particular, many routes connect two villages in direct contact with nature. Thrillseekers should try routes such as Solenzara-Solaro: challenging and for the most experienced, measuring 28km and requiring around four hours. Climb to Solaro from Solenzara on the road. Shortly after the fountain, enter the area of ​​the Natural Park and follow the path with significant elevation and mixed terrain: sand, rock and gravel.

7. Kitesurfing

Kitesurfing is a traction watersport consisting of sliding with a board pulled by a kite. It’s attracting more and more people, especially those looking for thrills. Kitesurfing is more accessible than one might think and it’s not just for an insider audience.



8.  Diving

Diving in Corsica is an exceptional way of enjoying the Mediterranean, with the promise of discovering UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Want a dive idea? A 53m long cargo ship was torpedoed during the Second World War off Cervioni – and the wreck now sits on the sand 33m deep. A true oasis in the middle of this large stretch of sand, it shelters many marine species.
